Vadodara: Principal and director of Bhartiya Vidya Bhavan’s have been booked for summoning students to the school for taking exams. The police have issued notices to principal, Rajiv Kumar Singhal and director Deepak Dalal on Friday.
According to the police, it had received information that some students were called to the school for taking exams on Thursday. “The school authorities had asked eight students of Class IX to appear for exams in person at the school on Thursday. They flouted the notification that has banned gathering of students in the school amid the Covid-19 pandemic,” said R A Patel, Makarpura police inspector.
“The school management could have taken online classes. But they risked the students’ lives by asking them to take exams in person. Also, they hadn’t taken any permission for the gathering. We have issued notices to them and will arrest them in the coming days,” Patel told TOI.
